Exploring The Adirondacks With Colton Clement
This award-winning web series was created on a whim when my 10-year-old son Colton and I decided to grab a camera and go for a hike up Mount Baker in Saranac Lake, NY. Shot five months after graduating from SUNY Plattsburgh (Dec 2010) I wanted to keep my video chops up while looking for steady work. I figured why not make it a family affair. We set out to make a fun and informative video that not only promoted the beautiful Adirondacks but also the value of staying active. Once released on my personal YouTube channel the Mount Baker segment was a hit. It caught the attention of Mountain Lake PBS where Colton and I were invited in for an on-air interview. Soon after, the segment was chosen by The Lake Placid Film Forum as an official selection for its annual North Country Shorts showcase. We enjoyed the process so much that we continued to produce four more "Exploring" segments. Perhaps we'll add another one to the mix one day. Regardless, I'll always cherish the little web series that got my career off and running. Even more cool is that I did it with my son Colton in tow. He most definitely ROCKS! Now that's what I call mixing business and pleasure. Enjoy and don't forget to get out and play!
